The European GNSS Agency, based in Prague, is providing on its website a list of location-enabled applications that it considers potentially useful in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The applications range from those helping public authorities understand the dynamics of the outbreak to supporting citizens in their everyday lives by checking supermarket lines.

The apps are sorted into four categories:

  • Tracking the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Queue management
  • Response management
  • Information dissemination

If you are an application developer and you want to add your app to the list, contact
